Illustrator: Trouble with font size


Question

I am using Adobe illustrator Cs5.1 on Mac. I am having trouble making with font size. In short, I will select two blocks of text and set them as the same font and the same size. However, they appear completely different sizes. Horizontal scale and vertical scale are both set at 100%. Problem exists with multiple fonts. enter image description here

Accepted Answer

The top line is most likely set to superscript.

Select the text, choose Show Options from the Character Panel menu, then click the Superscript button.

CS6 screenshot, but should be the same in CS5.

In CS5 you may need to uncheck the "superscript" option in the Character panel menu. I can't launch CS5 to check.
